#German “Crash Kurs” 1 Week @Radolfzell

Back home in Ostschweiz… It’s been a really intensive week in Radolfzell (Baden-Wüttenberg, Germany). Lessons, knew new people, time running…. Report: the teachers of the Carl Duisburg Center (CDC) have been good; I didn’t expect to master German in 1 week, but to correct something… Now I know where I am and what I need to improve in order to go further…
I also got chance to meet with new people… New Zealand, Russia, Turkey, Korea, India… Thanks to everyone.
Here are some photographic picture of the places around.

German study or Italian eating? @”Il pomodorino” #Radolfzell am Bodensee

Well, I am in Radolfzell on the Bodensee Lake to improve my German.
We are in Germany, not far from Switzerland border… Thus the restaurants are nearly all Italians… Then I found one restaurant run by people of Calabria region… which is the one where my family come from… In the end, instead of studying, I am eating… Nochmal (again).

Sunday at #Chur (#Coira) – The oldest town in #Switzerland

Due to a unnatural nice whether, we decided to take a drive nearby to the Swiss Alps, in Chur.

From Wikipedia

Chur or Coire (pronounced [ˈkuːr] in Graubünden and outside of Switzerland but [ˈxuːr] in other cantons of Switzerland; Alemannic German: Khûr; Romansh: Cuira [ˈkwerɐ] or [ˈkwoi̯rɐ]; Italian: Coira [ˈkɔi̯ɾa]; French: Coire [ˈkwaʁ]; Latin: CVRIA, CVRIA RHAETORVM and CVRIA RAETORVM) is the capital of the Swiss canton of Graubünden and lies in the northern part of the canton. Chur is situated at the right shore of the Rhine-River and is known as the oldest town of Switzerland.
Archaeological evidence of settlement at the site, in the Eastern Alps, goes back as far as the Pfyn culture[3] (3900-3500 BC),[4] making Chur one of the oldest settlements in Switzerland. Remains and objects from the Bronze and Iron Ages have been found also in the eastern sector of the current city’s centre.

An evening wandering in #Brindisi between #Rome’s ruins and #Templars heritage.

We took a walk in Brindisi Center. Into the crowd of modern buildings, it’s still possible to wander in old roads, look at the ancient Roman’s ruins, see the Cathedral and watch the Templars Cloister.

Brindisi was the end of Rome’s “Via Appia” Road. It’s still possible to see a copy of the original two Roman’s columns, which marked the end of the empire built’s road.

Brindisi was one of Templars Knight places, too.

Here are some few pictures.
